Artisan 1430 - Piezography Special Edition K6 system
Piezography Special Edition K6 ink set for matte printing. This kit includes the new Ultra HD™ matte black for up to 1.84 optical density, a set of the new Vermont PhotoInkjet 1430 refillable carts and a chip resetter. Click on detailed description for more information.
We're including a set of refillable cartridges for the Epson 1430 and 1500W printers (these both use Epson model 79 cartridges.) We also include a chip resetter so you can refill the carts when you want to. The new Community Edition or Piezography has new media profiles for the extended dynamic range of the included Ultra HD™ matte black ink. This system is for those who want to make fine art matte black & white photographs at a level at which no other system, or OEM can reach. Entry level price, but not entry level results.
Set 6 (HD matte only) is a Piezography ink set for printers with 6 ink positions where only matte printing is desired. These printers include the Epson 1400, 1430, and 1500W. The entire ink set is dedicated to matte printing. It includes the matte black shade 1, and shades 2-6.
However, this set includes the new Ultra HD™ Matte Black that increases dMax to the highest in the entire industry. Epson MK and regular Piezography MK can reach no more than 1.64 on the highest quality media. Piezography Pro Ultra HD™ is a new generation of nano-carbon black ink that can reach 1.84 for nearly a full stop increase in dynamic range!
Because the 1430 is so inexpensive, and the results of this ink set are so amazing - this is one of our most exciting Piezography releases. Ultra HD™ matte black is crazy dark. It is the darkest matte black ink offered by anyone and this includes all OEMs and all other 3rd party suppliers. You will not have seen matte black & white photographs with this level of dMax.
This is a new ink set for the 1430 family of 6 ink printers that we are releasing at the end of 2017. We have fully profiled these printers and the new profiles that include the Ultra HD are now in the Commuity Edition of Piezography software which you can download here. Further, we have included Master Curves for this ink/printer combo which means that you can purchase Piezography Professional Edition software to make your own media curves.
You get a set of six bottles of ink including the new Ultra HD™ matte black, five additional shades of black ink. You get a set of the new InkjetMall Refillable cartridges, with priming syringes, and a chip resetter.

The cartridges included with this system fit the EPSON 1430 printers that use Epson model 79 cartridges. They will also fit 1500W printers that use the same 79 model cartridge from Epson. If you are not certain, please look up your printer model on the Epson site and look at ink supplies. Those for your printer if they start with T79, then your printer is compatible with our cartridges. If instead, they start with T80 or anything other than T79, then your printer model is not compatible. The USA 1430 printers and the EU 1500W printers use T79. The 1430 and 1500W sold in other regions may not.
Piezography K7 and K6 inks are compatible with both matte and glossy (including baryta) papers.
- To use with matte papers, the Matte Black shade 1 must be used.
- For printing on glossy or baryta papers, the Photo Black shade 1 must be used.
- After printing on a glossy or baryta media, a second overprint of Piezography Gloss Overprint is requried according to our instructions in order to equalize all gloss differential, bring out shadow detail, and eliminate bronzing.
Piezography inks are intended for use with Piezography .iquad curves and the QuadTone RIP when used as instructed inthe NEW Piezography Manual which can be found in our Instructions tab.
There are many different configurations of ink available according to printer model and your intended use.
If you are buying an optional HD version of an ink set it may require the purchase of Piezography Professional Edition software in order to make your own custom curves. Where this is not mandatory with the Piezography Pro HD Photo Black, it is mandatory with the Piezography Pro Ultra HD Matte Black.
